Former WWE Diva heads to court - againPosted: Updated:
Former WWE Diva Tamara Sytch is expected to appear in court yet again after being arrested for the fifth time in a month for charges related to domestic violence.
Sytch was arrested Monday just after 7 p.m. after police were called to her former Branford home where officers said they found her intoxicated and sleeping inside. Police said her being inside violates protective orders issued by the court for previous domestic violence arrests.
Sytch was charged with disorderly conduct, criminal mischief and three counts of violation of a protective order.
She was held on $25,000 bond and arraigned in New Haven Superior Court on Tuesday.
"How many times do we have to do this?" asked the judge after Sytch was presented in court.
After bonding out Tuesday afternoon, a neighbor of the apartment complex noticed Sytch on the property again. She was arrested by police. She was charged with violating a protective order.
"She's a really nice person," said one neighbor who did not want to be identified. "She needs help and obviously she needs more help now because she loves the wrong guy."
On Wednesday, Sytch appeared in court again.
According to court papers, Sytch's bail bondsman brought her to her boyfriend's home. However, he would not comment to Eyewitness News on Wednesday
The victim told Eyewitness News that the only one who can help Sytch is herself.
"When Tamara is sober, she is an amazing person, but when she drinks, she is an uncontrollable, violent demon," said the victim in a statement.
Sytch was previously arrested Sept. 11 and was charged with disorderly conduct. The next day, police again arrested and charged her with disorderly conduct, strangulation and violation of a protective order. In one of those incidents, she put her ex-boyfriend in a headlock, police said.
On Sept. 13, she was arrested again and charged her with violation of a protective order.
The WWE has sent Sytch, who has had problems with drugs and alcohol, to rehabilitation three times and has covered all the costs associated with the treatments.
"Unfortunately, Ms. Sytch continues to make poor personal choices," said the WWE in a statement Tuesday. "WWE will continue to provide assistance should she want to take advantage of it."
